    Wednesday Mar 15 | Minnesota Lawyer

    White men still dominate the legal profession in Minnesota and, while women and some minority groups have made inroads, the decades-long push to diversify the ranks of lawyers has not yielded the parity many hoped for.

    Thursday Feb 23 | Minnesota Lawyer

    Immigration law is so complicated that a defense lawyer could not be expected to know that an adult client who confessed to having sex with a 15-year old would be subject to automatic deportation. At least, that is the opinion of a four-member majority on the Minnesota Supreme Court, which on Wednesday rejected a Mexican citizen's bid to withdraw a guilty plea to third-degree criminal sexual conduct on the grounds that his public defender didn't warn him the conviction would inevitably result in his removal.

    Thursday Feb 23 | Minnesota Lawyer

    For the 20,000 or so souls who are called on annually for jury duty at the Hennepin County Government Center in downtown Minneapolis, the exercise of civic obligation long came with a downside: Countless hours spent in an impossibly dreary, ill-lit jury assembly room located deep in the bowels of the 24-story complex. As he jokingly reflected on "that welcoming and inviting space" the other day, David Hough, the Hennepin County administrator, was moved to quote a few passages from James Lileks, the Star Tribune's resident wag.

    The 2016 Drug Reform Act Ramsey County Attorney John Choi successfully pushed through the Legislature has been called one of the most significant Minnesota sentencing reform measures in decades.

    Even by standards of Southern justice gone awry, the case of Louisiana death row inmate Michael Wearry is unusual.
